I'm attempting this pattern here - http://www.dreamweaveryarns.com/catalog/pdf/goodbyeyellowbrickroad.pdf
(from a post by faraboverubies) and i'm ok up until it says, (on second side) knit 10 (ok) and then slip 10 st just worked onto the holders"
for a start - what holder? ( i tried another knitting needle) so i'm following the instructions and carry on with the remaining instructions...
then later on it states "slip 10 stitches from first holder onto empty needle and knit"
now when i follow these instructions i end up with a big hole - loose yarn and ten stitches that look completely out of place.
what on earth am i doing wrong?
maybe i need a more ismple explanation? if you can help - plse post Smiley

A holder is just that-- something to hold the stitches.  I have "real" holders, but I much rather prefer to just use a DPN (with some sort of stopper to keep the stitches from falling off-- I use rubber bands). 

I'm not entirely sure of the schematic of the thing, but I think you're supposed to have that big hole.  I think the bootie is supposed to look like an 'E' laying on its side, with the outer legs being wider than  the middle one before you increase the stitches to make the strap portion of the T-strap. 

Does that make any sense?
